    Huffington Compost ^ | January 16, 2018 | Danielle S. McLaughlin
    There is a girl in Toronto who needs a lot of patience and understanding. This 11-year-old child made a mistake that grew and grew until it became an international story. She told her family, her school and the police that a stranger had followed her and attacked her with scissors, slashing her hijab. Twice. The child's brother reported that he had been witness to it all. The girl described her attacker and the event in some detail. The man was Asian, he was smiling, he was dressed in black, the scissors had a blue handle. After the police went to...

    WFAA anchor Alisha Laventure gave the President a piece of her mind. Laventure is the daughter of two Haitian immigrants. She says she took personal offense to President Trump’s comments about immigrants from Haiti. “The fact is what the President said the other day is so wrong, I can’t even repeat it,” she said.

    HONOLULU — Hawaii is the first state to prepare the public for the possibility of a ballistic missile strike from North Korea. The state's Emergency Management Agency on Friday announced a public education campaign about what to do. Hawaii lawmakers have been urging emergency management officials to update Cold War-era plans for coping with a nuclear attack as North Korea develops nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles that can reach the islands.
  • Why do liberals attack conservatives for "shaming the poor" and glorifying "taxpayers concerns"?

    Cronistas ^ | January 16, 2018 | Guava Cheese Puff
    I got a hold of this far-left book, "The Emotional Politics of Racism". The author, as usual, using the same liberal talking points, attacking Aemrican middle class taxpayers for worrying about "welfare recipients", attacking "law and order as racist", etc. "Shaming the poor". "Shaming illegal immigrants". Is their goal really to keep people poor or to play political games? It's sickening and sad. http://www.cronistas.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/The-Emotional-Politics-of-RacismDr.Soc_.pdf

    In 1014 AD the Byzantine Emperor Basil II defeated the Bulgar hordes at the Battle of Kleidion. To ensure the Bulgars would never again rise up against him, Basil blinded the survivors—leaving every hundredth man with a single eye. The one-eyed led their brothers home, but mostly the blind led the blind. How many Bulgars were separated from their kin on their anabasis? How many died in the Thracian wilderness—food for worms and wolves? A hand slick with blood loses its grip, and in the frantic search for fingertips a dozen followers are led astray. Those behind don't panic. They...

    Actress Jamie Lee Curtis attacked President Trump on Saturday over a false alarm sent by Hawaii's Emergency Management Agency (EMA) that alerted residents to a supposedly incoming ballistic missile. In a tweet posted Saturday afternoon, Curtis attacked Trump on Twitter, writing "YOU DID THIS!" despite the fact that the EMA, which is run by the state of Hawaii, apologized for the incident Saturday afternoon and Trump was golfing at the time. "This Hawaii missle scare is on YOU Mr. Trump. The real FEAR that mothers & fathers & children felt is on YOU. It is on YOUR ARROGANCE. HUBRIS. NARCISSISM....

    LA Ti,es ^ | 1/14/18 | Kerry Jackson
    Guess which state has the highest poverty rate in the country? Not Mississippi, New Mexico, or West Virginia, but California, where nearly one out of five residents is poor. That’s according to the Census Bureau’s Supplemental Poverty Measure, which factors in the cost of housing, food, utilities and clothing, and which includes noncash government assistance as a form of income. Given robust job growth and the prosperity generated by several industries, it’s worth asking why California has fallen behind, especially when the state’s per-capita GDP increased approximately twice as much as the U.S. average over the five years ending in...

    Social-justice warriors dominate a leading tech company.Let’s ponder a disturbing question: What if the crisis of free speech on college campuses, with their often extreme intolerance for conservative points of view, represents the high point for free expression in a student’s life? In other words, what if the “real world” is more repressive, more ignorant, and more punitive toward dissenting speech? What if entire corporations adopt the ideologies and norms of the most ruthless campus social-justice warriors, ruining careers and depriving employees of their livelihoods when those employees dissent from the dominant ideology? In other words, what if the rest...
  • Why Liberals Need to Look Down on Conservatives

    americanthinker.com ^ | Selwyn Duke
    A common theme among progressives is that conservatives aren't just wrong; they're dumb. Reagan was dumb. G.W. Bush was dumb. Trump is dumb. "Knuckle-dragger," "mouth-breather," "stupid," and "uncultured" are typical pejoratives hurled at conservatives, who apparently tend to live in trailer parks, require dental care, handle snakes, and marry first cousins. Why, I had a liberal actor (excuse the redundancy) tell me once that I wasn't necessarily bad, just not as "evolved" as he was. (I had a great retort at the ready, but I decided just to lash him with my tail instead.) The reason for this arrogance isn't...

    Moody Bible Institute is in the midst of what some say is a "crisis" involving falling enrollment numbers, theologically liberal professors, and an administration that has betrayed the school's mission and created a culture of fear. The school, however, maintains that recent strategic moves have better positioned the institution for the future and they are presently addressing concerns. In November, Moody Bible Institute of Chicago — founded in 1886 and named after renowned American evangelist Dwight L. Moody — announced that as part of a strategic initiative to preserve its long-term financial well-being, it would close its campus in Spokane,...

  • Baltimore breaks city record for homicides per capita

    NY Post ^ | January 2, 2018
    Baltimore has set a new per-capita homicide record as gunmen killed for drugs, cash, payback - or no apparent reason at all. A surge of homicides in the starkly divided city resulted in 343 killings in 2017, bringing the annual homicide rate to its highest ever – roughly 56 killings per 100,000 people. Baltimore, which has shrunk over decades, currently has about 615,000 inhabitants. [Snip] The main reasons are the subject of endless interpretation. Some attribute the increase to more illegal guns, the fallout of the opioid epidemic, or systemic failures like unequal justice and a scarcity of decent opportunities...

    The Golden Globes show is getting a major security upgrade from the Beverly Hills police department for its 75th anniversary show, set for Sunday, January 7 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills. Citing the number of event attacks this year – which have included the Ariana Grande concert bombing and Las Vegas mass shooting at a country music festival, to name two entertainment-related events – there will be additional staff and security at the Globes, even though there are currently no specific credible threats. Metal detectors, explosives testing and canine patrols are likely part of the plan, and...

Tamarisk trees in Palm Springs, California. 2. The ice cream truck song. 3. Credit scores. 4. Car insurance. 5. Crime statistics. 6. Halloween costumes. 7. Calling Elizabeth Warren "Pocahontas." 8. Most of the better Disney movies. 9. Dr. Seuss. 10. White flight. 11....

    Newsweek ^ | December 27, 2017 | Matthew Cooper
    Biden spoke poignantly about [family tragedies] during his recent cross-country book tour. And inevitably, he’d be asked about the 2020 election. That’s what happened on a crisp night in November, when almost 2,000 people piled into Washington, D.C.’s Warner Theatre. "I haven’t decided to run," he insisted, but the implication was clear: He hasn’t decided not to run. This wiggle room encourages all those who believe Biden could thump Donald Trump. And he certainly has the résumé: After 36 years in the Senate and two terms in the White House alongside Obama, he knows how to get things done in...

    Joe for America ^ | December 23, 2017 | Scott Osborn
    Denver just decriminalized public defecation in order to make life easier for immigrants and the homeless. After decriminalizing defecating on sidewalks, the Chamber of Commerce will probably rename Denver as the “Mile High Pile City.”No Board of Health? That’s how diseases spread. Now every time I think of Denver I will see visions of poop and other body fluids on the sidewalk. People are required to dispose of dog poop and Denver is letting humans defecate any where they please.What’s disturbing as well is that they also decriminalized camping out on private land. So now you can go out to get...

  • Racist Trees Separating Golf Course From Black Neighborhood Will Come Down

    Many longtime residents of the neighborhood previously told the (Palm Springs, Calif.) Desert Sun they believed the trees were planted for racist reasons in the 1960s, and remained a lasting remnant of the history of segregation in the city. Residents said the invasive tamarisks, which block views of the Tahquitz Creek Golf Course and San Jacinto mountains, have artificially depressed property values and prevented black families from accumulating wealth in their property over the past half century.
